A lot of adesklets desklets expects the "VeraBd" font. This font is not included in the adesklets package. The "Vera" font is however. I solved a lot of my problems by symlinking /usr/share/adesklets/VeraBd.ttf to /usr/share/adesklets/Vera.ttf
Hi... is this issue still valid?
Ping... will close if no feedback :-/
adesklets has several bugs open, none of which have been fixed. Package seems dead since 2007, upstream is unresponsive. I think I'll just hard mask this package, pending removal.
